Alan Lee and Danny Ward scored late goals to cancel out Scott McDonald's opener and secure the win at the John Smith's Stadium, and the Boro boss was evidently frustrated with the scoreline.

"This last six weeks has cost us and we keep conceding goals that we shouldn't concede," Mowbray said.

"We have to improve drastically. The players need to do their jobs. We are being naive and it's happening too often.

"Whatever league you play in - whether it's the Conference or the Champions League - if you can't defend set-pieces you are not going to win matches.

"I wouldn't have been happy with a point but to lose the game is unbelievable. There was not a lot of quality but we came in with a clean sheet at half-time," he said.

"Then we got the goal and had a few half chances and looked reasonably comfortable. Then with a corner kick and a header and they are back in it.

"We have to analyse it and work out how we put it right."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
